Beyoncé is officially back with her new song “Break My Soul”, and it’s already been declared a gay anthem for the ages.

The song, which serves as lead single off her upcoming album Renaissance, samples the classic house hit “Show Me Love” by Robin S. To the delight of queer people everywhere, it also samples Big Freedia’s “Explode”.

In classic Beyoncé fashion, the singer dropped the song hours earlier than expected on Tidal.

In “Break My Soul”, conveniently released during Pride Month, Beyoncé channels her inner Karl Marx when she sings: “Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job / I’m gonna find new drive, damn, they work me so damn hard / Work by nine, then off past five / And they work my nerves, that’s why I cannot sleep at night.”

Needless to say, fans are absolutely obsessed, overjoyed, and generally gagged by the new song – and pretty much everyone is ready to quit their jobs and join their local communist political party in Beyoncé’s honour.

 

Fans were overjoyed to have Beyoncé back in their lives, but many were quick to take to Twitter to beg the singer to drop a music video for “Break My Soul”.

Meanwhile, queer people rushed to social media to thank Beyoncé for giving them a personal Pride Month gift.

Others used the opportunity to call for Beyoncé and Lady Gaga to team up for a “Telephone” part two.

 

 

“Break My Soul” marks Beyoncé’s first original song since she released “Be Alive” in 2021, which was written for the film King Richard.

The singer is expected to release her hotly-anticipated seventh studio album Renaissance on 29 July.
